though, they admit there are still more questions than answers here. but in this small town, one thing does seem very clear. >> i hope every parent, if you haven't hugged or kissed your kid in the last couple of days, you take that time. >> reporter: because they are now painfully aware without warning that time can be ripped away. jay gray, nbc news, chardon, ohio. we turn now to politics and today's all-important primaries in michigan and arizona. polls showing mitt romney way ahead in arizona but the very close race in michigan is critical. a loss in his home state would be a devastating blow for the romney campaign. tracie potts joining us now from washington with more. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. republican insiders are saying mitt romney really just got to pull this out, he has to win his home state to avoid a long fight with rick santorum. and fight is exactly how some
voters there are describing the campaign. with 30 delegates at stake in michigan today divided proportionate proportionately, it's like 14 different primaries in one state. >> it's one story in western michigan where you have a lot of the conservative christian voters, it's another story here in metropolitan detroit where you've got a lot of suburbani s suburbanites. >> reporter: the polls have been back and forth. >> santorum is a nice guy, but he's never had a job in the private sector. >> doing remarkably well. >> reporter: some michigan voters say they're tired of the attack. >> they're talking about each other instead of talking about what needs to be done for this condition. >> you got your cameras, you got to put me up on facebook tonight. >> reporter: santorum called romney's tax plan obama styled class warfare. he's sponsoring computer robocalls all over michigan
asking democrats to vote against romney. romney calls it a dirty trick. republican governors are worrieded a prolonged fight could hurt the party's chances in november. >> do you think they should calm down a little bit so? >> reporter: even before the polls close today in michigan and in arizona, rick santorum is switching his focus to super tuesday, he's headed to ohio where mitt romney is already outspending him three to one. >> a squeaker in michigan. thank you. all day long, msnbc is the place to follow today's crucial republican primaries. we've got special prime time coverage beginning at 8:00 p.m. eastern. hosted by chris matthew,s ed al sharpton, do not miss a minute of the special coverage. at a tea party event, rick santorum calling president obama a snob for wanting every american to go to college.
illinois congressman told al sharpton that santorum is wrong in several ways. >> i don't know what rick santorum is thinking about because clearly he is out of the mainstream, he's hypocritical and also just plain wrong when it comes to his facts when he talks about college, for example. but you know, if you want to talk about religion, let's talk about the values in every major religion in the world. things like love thigh neighbor and feed the hungry. because he's also taken off after food stamps. aren't these the kinds of things that ought to embody a religious person's view of the role of our society some so i'm just completely confused. and besides that, we just heard from president obama, but let me quote senator rick santorum in 2006 saying, quote, i was xh committed to ensuring every
pennsylvanian has access to higher education. that was just a few years ago. >> don't mess politics nation week nights at 6:00 eastern right here on msnbc, the place for politics. a home security camera showing dramatic video of a cab smashing through a fence and into the front of a house in brooklyn, new york. the car had such force as you see there, it knocked a second vehicle down the street. the driver was seriously injured but is expected to recover there. for the second time in a week, an suv has slammed into a convenience market in massachusetts. this time, the front of a ford explorer landing on the counter of the store. one person was treated for minor injuries. there's no word on what caused the driver to lose control. and flames rip through an oklahoma city flea market monday afternoon. three firefighters were hurt when the floor collapsed after the rear portion of the building gave way. authorities have not said what they think might have caused that fire. the market was closed at the time. then, finally, too many cars parked too close together made a
frozen lake in wisconsin not so frozen. the ice gave way and 36 cars straight through the cracks on lake winnebago. fortunately, no one inside the cars. the cars were parked there for an ice fishing competition. now a look at the national weather. we turn to bill karins with the weather channel forecast. do not park on ice this year. especially this year. >> have you ever driven on a lake before in a car? >> i've not. >> it's scary. i wouldn't want to park -- up in maine. >> crazy bill karins. >> ice gets pretty thick up there. but this winter is different. we have the primaries today. a big winter storm headed for michigan. what's interesting is that during the day today, the storm will be right in the middle, so it shouldn't be affecting either area. so let's show where you it hit yesterday first. that was in california.
that's where the snow began to paul. pine valley, california. picked up about 3 to 4 inches. some kids got to play with some snow. california has been just like many other areas with a lack of winter weather all season. so today as we go throughout the forecast period, wednesday is a day of concern for new england. that's going to be the problem up this. so today is fine. it's more or less wednesday, thursday that you'll have the issues. today's forecast looks great. temperatures in the 40s. 50 in philadelphia. 53 washington, d.c. the problem is that that storm system is now back here in the pour corner region. so atlanta today a chance of some showers. east coast looks okay. forecast in areas like denver, not a winter storm for you, in denver we'll see a wintry mix. phoenix, you should be just fine at 62 today. and even detroit should be fine, also. temperatures, it's really not all that cold. that's kind of bean the theme this entire winter. we are watching the cold air in the dakotas, minnesota,
wisconsin and michigan. those are exactly the area has will get hit by the next storm. so currently again it's located out here in the four corner region and the snowfall forecast, about 6 to 12 inches. this will be a significant storm. blizzard conditions likely between bismarck and fargo, outside of minneapolis. minneapolis by the way, you'll start as snow, probably get 2 to 4 inches, and then sleet, maybe freezing rain, kind of messy for you. but the worse worst of it, this spring stripe. and that will include many inches for vermont, massachusetts. so here's the forecast today into tonight. bismarck to fargo the heaviest snow. chicago, no snow for help. just rain. so a major winter storm, but it wouldn't be affecting the primary states today. home sales surge, and a new study that's giving rich folks a bad wrap. your business headlines is straight ahead. coming up, the kings get a new home and without a doubt the
